and the rest of the world. we can only build on science. you have to work with government supporters business, parliamentarians, with any stakeholder that understands and is willing to engage in education and managing risk for the future. the first product to the first idea that people that got together in the early parts of the decade serenade instrument for international cooperation. that is key here. they started working on what became the framework for action. i hope at least 10% of you have heard about this. maybe. i'm used to it not being very familiar, but i'm also very used to that people now ascendant when we start describing it. the framework for action was sick to duration of the previous details. there have been neo, strategy, which was strongly science-based, so there's other strategies, but the new strategy was really about globalization. it was really setting a framework for what outcome, both leinster to shoot goals and priorities in the sense of the people who put this together on the site thinks he will be in a safer a safer world. the adoption of the framework for action ha

a student achievement, health care coverage, life science and dietetics, veteran services and energy efficiency. that's a structural deficit is gone and why we've achieved the highest credit rating in history. best buy with further to go to be sure, we have a very short recession faster than most other states and stronger than before to prepare for the future we invest in ourselves and had done so during the worst economic downturn in the big memory, lurch the, barry fermi transportation bureaucracy and shutting down the turnpike authority, controlling health care costs in introducing accountability and flexibility of our schools, ending the peace in the pension system, refer need immiscible health care, eliminating 6000 positions, and overcome its unions to gain concessions, constantly seeking better ways to deliver services. we have together saved the commonwealth over $11 billion so far, which in turn has enabled us to invest in education, innovation and infrastructure and to grow opportunity. there's always more to do. only this past week we propose to reform the retiree health b

science research has shown, which sort of complicates this a little bitting are is that violent video games and movies have a counteracting effect, which is to incapacitate people. when violent movies come out, crime rate goes down because everybody is spending high-risk evening times in the move the theater. the same thing for video games. the incapacitation effect outweighs -- >> we need to have one coming out every day. >> what we don't know is whether you make the games and the movies a little less violent, whether people will spend less time engaging. it's a little complicated on the violence side. >> in fairness in the columbine case, there was a rush to judgment about the impact of violence video games on the young shooters, and then more detailed studies what drove them, one of them was more psycho pathic than people knew at the time and he drove the other shooter to become part of what turned out to be his lethal posse. so the larger issue, it seems to me, is taking all the component parts of violence in the media, a country that has had a lot of violence in its borders, in t
